Nice game, I haven't seen a 6.7, so I think this one could be unique without checking for duplicates

Code: Select all
 . . 6 | . . . | 3 . . 
 . 5 . | . . . | . 1 . 
 4 . . | . 3 . | . . 8 
-------+-------+------

-------+-------+------
 3 . . | . 8 . | . . 6 
 . 1 . | . . . | . 2 . 
 . . 4 | . . . | 9 . .      ER=6.7

Not so unique, 3 more 6.7's. The funny thing is that if you rate them with the jar file, it shows 6.6999999999.

Wow, after being off one day, my chances for finding any new ratings are gone.

Interesting for me is, that the hardest puzzle is almost symmetrical with the digits:
1-4, 2-7, 5-9, 6-8 with the only exception being a 3-6

Yes, interesting, but what prompted you to consider that? Did it just pop out at you, or is it something you normally look for?
